story, things are looking up in california have a surplus in a couple of years because they've raised taxes, what do you make of that? >> well. stuart: california is one of the states. >> california is a very, very mixed bag right now, because their economy is looking somewhat better, but relative to terrible. they had 13% unemployment just a little while ago. at the same time, however, they're doing this, by raising taxes and they have one of the worst out-migration problems in the country. stuart: will it work, will it give them a surplus? >> well, a short-term surplus doesn't help if it does long-term damage to your economy. right now, they are losing jobs to other states, and we've calculated, the manhattan did the study on jobs and migration and the number one place that california jobs are leaving and going to is texas and that tells us something, it's not an illusion, these are actual numbers. stuart: so, do you agree with the characterization of death spiral? and that's obviously dramatic stuff. >> right, right, one of the things. stuart: would you go that far? >> no, i wouldn

with. the presiding officer: without objection. the senator from california. mrs. boxer: mr. president, i have listened to the senator from ohio, and i really want to be heard because he's talking about the fiscal cliff and how upset he is at the thought that the wealthiest people in america might go back to the tack rates we had under bill clinton when we had the greatest prosperity, we had 23 million new jobs, and we balanced the budget to the point where we even had a surplus. and my friend comes down here and he's complaining that the proposal on the table would give 98% of the people a tax cut, and he's upset that 2% of the people might have to go back to the rates under bill clinton. well, i just want to say something. we just had an election. we had a big election. we had a tough election. we had an expensive election. and one of the major parts of that election revolved around what do we do about the deficits, what do we do about economic growth, what do we do about spending, and we discussed it in the senate races, we discussed it in the house races, and of course president ob

in southern california. making their debut just in time for the holiday shopping season. the idea came from the cupcake vending machine, already a hit in beverly hills. caviar can be just as sweet says the vending machine's owner. is it about making it accessible to people? >> very accessible, convenient, at every price point. >> reporter: so it is caviar out of a vending machine in a shopping mall, but some say this just doesn't belong. >> reporter: owner david lenz says his caviar is served with more flair at his restaurant, not food court fudge. >> that's the part i don't get. i can see getting it, taking it home to have some champagne with it just on your lunch break? it doesn't add up. with a soda from the food court? >> exactly. >> reporter: we found plenty of caviar critics. >> would you put $500 in a machine? >> no. >> would you buy eggs out of a vending machine? much less fish eggs. >> reporter: but the flurries are buying for their daughter this christmas. a little luxury for the layman, conveniently dispensed just in time for the holidays. nothing too fishy about it. kyung lah, c

. when he retired, he had health insurance from his employer in california, and then he had a massive heart attack and surgery, and they canceled his insurance. my very conservative republican brother who had no use for social programs started counting the days until he was eligible for medicare. that was the only place he could turn. what was at stake were all of the savings he put together for his family. so we would talk on if anybody doesn't talk about a later eligibility age for medicare, what i want to hear is the assurance and guarantee that people like my brother will have access to affordable health care and insurance during any interim period of time from retirement and to actually qualify for medicaid. and intelligent that, i'm skeptical. i want to see more before. let me also say when it comes to medicare that their savings to be had there. savings that were brought up by the simpson-bowles commission to i will go through it, but savings that will not compromise the care and benefits to beneficiaries, but can lead to real efficiencies and delivery of health care. award abo

: a senator: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from california. mrs. boxer: i would ask that the quorum call be dispensed with, please. the presiding officer: without objection. mrs. boxer: thank you so much, mr. president. just in the lull here and if there is any legislative business to take place, i will immediately give up the floor, but in this lull i just want to make a point. i am so proud to be in this senate, so proud to be here for a long time now, came here in 1993, there were two women, we went to six women, now we're going to 20 women and i've seen changes and i've seen good things and i've seen rough things. but i have to say one of the things that keeps coming up continually here is folks trying to use these debates on bills to add irrelevant amendments, amendments that have nothing to do with the topic at hand. i think we all agree that defending our nation is our number-one priority, and therefore having a defense authorization bill is very, very important. and i'm sure that we don't agree with every single sentence of this bill, but in general we all wa
